Damage - Done, Starting Reversal

Well I did some major damage last week. I gained a lot but have been taking it off this week. I have not been perfect this week but much better than the end of last week. I have gotten back at it and I have been keeping my workouts up. I am really enjoying the gym right now - I just feel so good.

I am staring at the screen trying to think of something to write.....nothing is coming. I will be back tomorrow to let you all know something......

Points, points and more points

I now have 2 solid days of counting and tracking all my points. It feels so good. I have even had points left over from a little treat in the evening. I have also gotten 2 good workouts in. I knew I was having a bit of a heavier dinner so I added 15 minutes to my workout for a couple of extra points.

I have been doing alot of thinking about what to eat and what not to eat. I was going to cut out chips, pop and chocolate.....you know all the normal crap we promise to never eat again. Fried foods are never to pass these lips again. Yeah right! I came to the realization that all of these things exist in real life - the change I need to make is not over doing it. I need to be able to control myself around snacks and work out a little extra for the days where I know it will be harder.

I found an old workout for the Bosu and I am going to give it a try when I am at the gym tomorrow. I need to switch things up again - I just get too bored with the machines. Anyone know if any websites where I can find some good routines?

I have been away for some time now. I really could not face myself.....My eating was so out of control I am sure I have gained about 4 pounds from last weeks start weight for Thunder Thighs Challange. I have done this through my phone as I couldn't figure out how to get my pic off my phone....(I really need to read up on it).

Today has been a great day. I have eaten well and stayed within my points. I also got to the gym this morning for a great workout! I did however goof and forget my bra.....I got out of the shower and realized I needed my hubby to drop it off at work! Good thing I had a sweater - these bad boys without a bra and a white t-shirt are not something that should be unleashed at work.

I have not been meeting my goals but hope today is a good start for me. I just need to pice some good days together to get myself back on track.

I feel like I am on repeat. It is the same old story every day. I had a great morning including an awesome workout and good eating all day. I am having real problems with the over eating when I am alone. I just want to stuff my face with a tonne of junk.

I really need to find a way around this. It is really starting to piss me off. It is holding my weight loss back. I could be doing much better but I am letting this beat me. I can do this - I have done it before. What the hell is holding me back! The more frustrated I get the worse I eat. I haven't ever given up I just seem to slowed down. Way too much!

Almost everyone at work seems to be on a diet as well. No one ever has anything helpfull to say but we all seem stalled in the same spot. None of us ever seem to get anywhere. I have tried to get someone going with me but the only one who ever really `participated moved last year. I am having a hard time getting my mom going too. She also works with me and is constantly bothering me about my diet and how she doesn`t want me to turn out like her. I get frustrated but I can`t seem to find the right words to tell her it isn`t too late for her either.....

Bangs Head Against Wall

That is what I have done tonight. I had a really strong start and did some good planning. For some reason after work was a real problem for me. I shall get myself back on track tomorrow morning after my workout =)

I have tracked today but I will be using all my extra points to account for the crap I ate today. I did find a really good lunch. I had 3 light rye wasa crackers with cream cheese and some seasoned chicken lunch meat and some coleslaw with fat free italian dressing. So yummy and only like 6 points!

I was very proud of myself for workout out on Monday (holiday Monday). When Grace went down for her nap I took off for an hour at the gym - it felt so good! I am really looking forward to my morning gym date tomorrow morning.
